Cliff's K's for Kids Surpasses 100 Strikeouts!
Cliff Lee surpassed the 100 strikeout mark when he threw seven strikeouts in eight strong innings on Saturday, June 11th against the Chicago Cubs. This brings Cliff K's for Kids donation to a total of $16,050 with 107 strikeouts. Cliff's strikeouts totaled 185 last year, but with the 2011 season not even half way over, it looks like he could set a new career record.

Lee passed teammate Roy Hallady for the league lead in strikeouts by only 1 strikeout during the June 11th game. The left-hander has worked at least seven innings in nine of his 14 starts this season. It was the fourth time he has gone at least eight innings, including one complete game. He has won four of his last five starts.
''Sometimes you get locked in and I'm hoping I'm getting into that,'' Lee said. ''But there's always something to work on, always something to get better at.''*
